A Night at the (Mining) Museum
By Contributor Melissa Kirr
The First Grade Parent’s Committee in partnership with The National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum (NMHF&M) proudly presents “A Night at the Museum”.
The event will be held at the Museum on Thursday, April 18 from 6 – 7:30 p.m. Students, parents and teachers will learn about local mining history through interactive exhibits and a scavenger hunt! A Night at the Museum is Free and Open to all 1st Grade Families. The Committee gratefully thanks the National Mining Hall of Fame & Museum for their generosity in providing free admissions to the families and for sharing such a special venue with the students.
This will be the final First Grade event of the school year. These events have encouraged interaction and offered avenues for new friendships to form between the students who were split due to overcrowding at West Park Elementary.
The National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum is the showcase of American mining and boasts one of the most comprehensive mining memorabilia, equipment and mineral collections in North America. They have lift-size historic replica mines, extensive gem and mineral specimens, scale models of historic mining towns and railroads, interactive exhibits, educational displays, dioramas, and many fine pieces of artwork from sculptures to murals.
